Privatizing America's Highways; Bill McKibben on Greening Corporations; Afghanistan's Return to Warlordism


Published December 17, 2006


This week, we check in on Afghanistan with Sarah Chayes, who recently authored "The Punishment of Virtue: Inside Afghanistan After the Taliban." Also, writer and environmentalist Bill McKibben takes a look at whether corporate social responsibility is for real — or if it's just "greenwashing."

Plus, some American highways are being sold off to the highest bidder, leaving multinationals and Wall Street firms sitting happy on piles of cash. Interstate 90 in Indiana, the Chicago Skyway, and the Pocahantas Parkway in Virginia are now privately owned -- which roads are next? We talk to Mother Jones' Dan Schulman and trucker advocate Todd Spencer of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association.

Finally, a week after Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet's death, we look back at his real legacy. We talk to Hector Salgado, who was tortured by Pinochet regime and later made a documentary in which he confronted his torturers.

TO corporate interests will come back to bite us in the butt, just wait and see. Lively discussion though. Listened yesterday, it's good.
